Church Around the World reports in it’s September News that at least 95 schools in Kenya were forced to shut their doors after 2000 teachers quit over fears of attacks by Islamic extremists. These schools will be closed indefinitely, and 500 others are at risk of closing as they suffer from lack of faculty members.
Most of the teachers who resigned were Christians and feared being targeted by terrorists after al Shabaab militants attacked Christian students at Garissa University in April. In the attack, four al Shabaab militants shot and killed 148 Christian students. The terrorists separated Christian students from Moslem students in a methodical slaughter.
